Samsung has shifted over 10 million units of its all-conquering Galaxy S, it has been announced, making the handset a strong contender for the biggest selling Android smartphone thus far.
The company’s flagship mobile in the Galaxy range, which has latterly expanded to include Sammy’s first-ever tablet the Galaxy Tab, attained the landmark figure in a little over six months.
The lion’s share of the sales were in the US, which accounted for 4 million of the handsets’ buyers. Europeans snapped up 2.5 million units, with a further two million finding their way into the palms of South Korean users.
Available now from most networks, the Galaxy S runs Android 2.1 and packs a mighty impressive four-inch SuperAMOLED touchscreen and a five megapixel camera.
Existing owners were recently given a real treat to look forward to, with the news that Samsung is definitely bringing the latest, greatest iteration of Google’s operating system to the Galaxy S this year.
New features it’ll add include a better touchscreen keyboard for efficient text entry and support for gyroscope sensors. Perhaps most welcome, though, is a new power management system that ought to help improve battery life, which isn't actually all it might be.
